But this has existed for over a year. I have the live music archive app on my iphone and can search and stream any music I want from the app. go to itunes app store and search for "live music archive"

you don't need an app to stream the archive on an iphone. just go to the website and hit play or hit the stream link on the lefthand side and it will play through quicktime.

Yeah, but you can't change tracks. (If I'm wrong about this, I'd be delighted to know how to make this happen...) Then listening straight through becomes the only option b/c you can't click to the next song to get to the place you left off. Also, the scroll down on the stream to the right, (with the song titles), doesn't respond on an iPhone. I think it has something to do with their refusal to equip iPhones with Flash.

So, yeah I think it would be great to have an Internet Archive app. The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center has a cool app that allows you to stream recordings of their concerts, so it can be done. Granted, they only have about 15 shows available at once.

I just click on the next song and it changes tracks just fine. I just tried it again an can jump all over the show which is great because it allows me to skip Good Lovin' whenever i want. I think if you do it through the quicktime player you might be correct because of the way it loads the show but if you click on the black box for streaming you can pick and choose tracks.

it was a bit of a joke referring to another thread at the time. There was a question about Good Lovin' and it turns out a few people, including myself don't really love the Pigpen versions of the song because of his rapping. While much of the Grateful Dead canon still seems fresh to me, those raps are really dated and i find them to be a distraction from the jamming that the band is doing. So i can only handle them in small doses. I feel the same way about Lovelight. Others reacting a bit like you did, somewhat dumbfounded by the idea of skipping Good Lovin' and actually stated they skip TO Good Lovin' not over it. I was just having fun based on that other thread. I do really like the Good Lovin' from that was left off the 100 Years Hall release. Only about 12 min and tight! It used to be here but they removed it after the box came out.

I actually am right there with you. Not a huge fan of GL beyond those crazy early years. My sarcasm didn't come through. I am not a fan of most of the Brent songs - old or new. I like him as a musician and as a backup singer, but...not so easy to love for me ;) So I will take you home with this thought, keep that Devil in a blue dress far from me, and watch out for just a little light.
